Stachys General Information

Stachys are popular for edging or as groundcover. Soft, silvery foliage adds pleasing texture and contrast to border. Best in full sun with good drainage. Nice for live wreath making.

Stachys Plant Care

Prefers evenly moist but well-drained soil. Deadhead to keep plants attractive and to keep from going to seed which declines the foliage. Do not prune for winter. Clean up foliage in spring. Can be divided every 4-5 years in spring by removing rooted sections and transplanting. Benefits from partial shade in hot climates.
